Scenes from everyday life, horses, children, and religious figures are among the subject matter of this new exhibit. In the mid-1950's, the late Tucson artist Ted DeGrazia explored the obscure technique of encaustic painting. Using the molten colored beeswax medium, he created dozens of encaustic paintings between 1953 and 1957. An opening reception for the exhibit will be held from 5 to 7pm on Friday January 26, 2018, and the exhibit will run through September 5, 2018. The opening reception is open to the public and offers free admission for the event.
